Tony Kearns, a civilian historian to the Irish Air Corps has spent over fifty years researching and writing about the organisation. In the clip, Tony refers to Paul Stormer, a German pilot who spoke to him about flying on a photographic reconnaissance mission to the Belfast area when they were attacked on the way there by the RAF (Royal Air Force), forcing them to land in Tramore in Waterford. Tony explains that he became good friends with Stormer and as a result he received a lot of information and insight into the experience of a reconnaissance pilot.
